Bayern Munich defender Rafinha was given a two-match ban and fined €15,000 by the German Football Federation (DFB) on Wednesday after being sent off in last weekend's draw with Borussia Dortmund.

The 27-year-old Brazilian was dismissed for elbowing Borussia midfielder Jakub Blaszczykowski in the face during the second-half of the UEFA Champions League final dress-rehearsal which ended in a 1-1 league draw in Dortmund.

The DFB disciplinary committee gave Rafinha an added fine and an extra game, to the statutory one-match ban for a red card, after the Brazil international also poked Blaszczykowski in the face as he walked off.

The incident led to a pitch side shouting match between Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp and Bayern's director of sport Matthias Sammer.

Bayern can appeal the ban which sees Rafinha suspended for the remaining two German league games of the season, at home to Augsburg on Saturday and next weekend at Borussia Monchengladbach.

Bayern have already won this season's German league title and face Dortmund at Wembley on 25 May for the Champions League trophy.

The Bavarians are bidding to become the first German club to win the treble of European, league and cup titles having also reached the German Cup final where they face Stuttgart on 1 June.
